*Hey all,

This email to let you know that this week Brian Wolford, Jaakko Helleranta
and Yohan Boniface got started with a team of Haitian mappers on the
preliminary work of HOT next mapping project in Northern Haiti with the
Haiti Recovery Initiative (USAID). Over the next 4 months, they will be
joined by Frederic Moine, Pierre Beland, Severin Menard and Will Skora. I
will myself work with them in Haiti setting up the program in 2 weeks time.

Through this project, together with a team of local Haitian mappers, HOT
will be creating a group of 60 mappers recruited amongst the youths of Cap
Haitian and together with them will improve upon the baseline data of
localities in the Cap Haitian Development Corridor (CHDC). The whole team
will be partnering with the University of Limonade which will be providing
office space and capacities throughout and after the project. HOT will work
with a team of local mappers in designing and running training and data
collection plans as well as producing specific training and guidance
documentation around OSM-based surveying and mapping techniques, data
model, data collection, JOSM presets and libraries of symbols for use
within web map services and JOSM, as well as coordinating the development
of tools (improvements to the HOT export tool and web visualization

I’d like to thank here the many talented individuals who expressed their
interest for working with HOT on this project in Haiti and encourage them
to continue being active within the Team and keeping up to date with other
projects we may have in the future.

Good day to all,*
*Nicolas  *
